Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a large-rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  • Place a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter in it. When the butter has melted, add the grated onions and saute for 3-4 minutes, until soft.

  • In a large bowl, mix the sausage, ground beef, panko, 1/2 cup apple butter, sour cream, eggs, salt, pepper, and allspice. Add the onion, once it cools. Get your hands in it and mix well, until evenly combined.

  • Measure out the meatballs into one-ounce portions. Roll tight balls and place them on the baking sheet, close together, but not touching. You should have 40-45 meatballs.

  • Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the remaining 1/2 cup of apple butter, with beef broth, honey, and 1-2 dashes of cayenne pepper. Whisk well.

  • After 15 minutes, remove the meatballs from the oven. Pour the sauce over the top, making sure to cover each meatball, and place back in the oven for 5-7 minutes.

  • Once cooked through, shake the baking sheet a little to loosen the meatballs and serve warm.

Each year I try something new to add to my "must make" list for the holidays. These meatball were at hit! Not one left over. I made these exactly as the recipe indicates. No need to switch thugs up. I will defiantly make these again. Read More

I only used 1/2 a teaspoon on allspice and it still was a little much. I followed everything else per the recipe. This is a good meatball recipe. I would recommend that you broil the meatballs for 2-3 min after cooking. Read More

I used grass fed beef no sausage and a different brand apple butter. We really liked these even my 2 and 4 year old kids! I would make more sauce next time though. Read More

PARTY!! This was a party in your mouth! I made this for supper tonight yes for supper; not for a party. I made them entree size instead of the tight little balls they talk about. I did everything but put the apple butter in them or use allspice I used garlic powder in them. I also didn't use apple butter in the sauce and both turned out KNOCKING!! Read More
